San Diego, CA-With their final pick of the 2014 NFL Draft the San Diego Chargers added Baylor wide receiver Tevin Reese in the seventh round.
Tevin Reese was one of the more explosive athletes available in this years NFL draft. Reese at the combine ran a 4.46 4o-yd dash and lead all receivers in the vertical jump. In college Tevin Reese was of the most explosive athletes in history, as he holds the NCAA record for most touchdowns of 40-plus yards with 21 and ranks third all time in receptions, yards and touchdowns at Baylor.
Tevin Reese gives the Chargers an explosive big-play receiver, who when at full strength and healthy can be an explosive receiver out of the slot to to stretch the field for the Chargers next season.
Tevin Reese also wants to take over the role of return man for the Chargers and be the impact player on special teams the Chargers have lacked the past few seasons. Last season Lavelle Hawkins, Danny Woodhead, Fozzy Whittaker, Ronnie Brown and Keenan Allen returned kicks for the Chargers last season for little success.
"“I really want to be a return guy,” Reese said. “I wanted to do it all throughout college. I did it throughout high school and I was good at it. I’m ready to get back out there and return some kicks.” –UT-San Diego Michael Gehlken"
